Tax deduction for bank fraud/theft


Recommended Posts

I am looking for some advice regarding tax deduction. My bank account was recently compromised and the scammer transferred $3k out of my account through e-transfer. The bank is currently investigating this unauthorized transaction. In case I won't be able to recover this amount, can I write it off against my personal income for tax purposes? I have read quite a bit about theft loss for business or investment income, but nothing much on individual theft loss. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
